Hooking up the phones
I flood wired the house with CAT5e during the build.
Have a mass of it in Node zero ... now need to hook up the incoming PSTN line to all the required sockets.
How did you guys achieve this neatly ... I could use a Krone block, but not very flexible should I want to move anything.
I assume I need something that gives me a star type feed to each socket from a single incoming analogue line ?
Presume many of you have done this, what did you use to do the job neatly and give a reasonable amount of flexibility for the future.
I guess I could first terminate all CAT5e to standard patch panels, and then need to hook patch panels to a common feed ... welcome your solution or ideas on this ?
Also need a neat reasonable sized 19” rack … any recommendations.

Check out these threads for your phones question:
(there are also another half-dozen threads here which are variations on similar themes)
At the phone-end, I'm using these adaptors:
As for 19" racks, eBay is good value but you'll usually need to go and collect it :-)
